Odd as it seems, some of the most remarkable Roadfood can be found in gas stations or convenience stores. Patty’s is a small deli next to a gas station, and they make the best fried chicken and French fries in the Northeast.

There is nothing the slightest bit fancy or “gourmet” about Patty’s, but the consistency of the excellent chicken and fries is not to be taken for granted. This is not a supermarket or a fast food chain; it is a small mom and pop place that is always crowded by locals who know all about it.

Route 188 in Southbury is a fun road to explore. If you leave Patty’s and drive a mile or two on 188 towards Middlebury there are amazing consignment and discount stores selling high end merchandise for pennies on the dollar. What you save there you can use for chicken money.
